What is osteomyelitis of the jaw
Osteomyelitis is an inflammation of the bone, bone marrow, covering the surrounding soft tissues. It can be acute and chronic. In the acute stage, the condition is accompanied by symptoms of intoxication. In the area of the damaged tooth, when pressed, there is increased soreness. Pronounced swelling is characteristic. The face becomes asymmetrical. The chronic course is characterized by a change in acute phases and remission.
The disease is common among people of all ages. According to the etiology, osteomyelitis are:
- odontogenic - they are identified most often in about 75% of cases, provoked by dental infections;
- traumatic - more often inflammation begins due to late seeking help for fractures of the jaw;
- hematogenous - provoked by the transfer of infection from other organs (scarlet fever, chronic throat diseases, etc.) by the blood stream.
The disease can also develop against the background of chronic diseases accompanied by a significant decrease in immunity (HIV, hepatitis B, C) and inflammatory infections (phlegmon, abscesses).
Treatment of osteomyelitis of the jaw is carried out in maxillofacial surgery. The therapy is quite complex, step-by-step. The cost of improper treatment can be the patient's life, because inflammatory processes over time affect an increasing number of tissues and organs. In Israeli clinics, the level of treatment for such problems is the highest. Medical rooms are equipped with everything necessary for a thorough examination and identification of the extent of the lesion.
